Self fulfilling prophecy policy.

California will fall short of its goal to slash greenhouse gas emissions by midcentury unless it adopts aggressive policies to fight climate change, a new report says.

The state is still on track to cut emissions of carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping gases to 1990 levels by 2020, according to a report released Monday by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

But reducing those emissions to 80% below 1990 levels by 2050, as required under a 2005 executive order by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, will not be possible without new policies and technological innovations, the report said.

Set an improbable target, fail to meet it and use that as an excuse for even more onerous regulation. All that from an executive order.

Remember that the next time somebody tries to give you the “as long as he/she has an ‘R’ after his/her name’ argument.

“as long as he/she has an ‘R’ after his/her name"

Tom McClintock had an 'R' after his name too. And a solid conservative record. And no Kennedy family ties. I voted for him. He lost.
